UMF Miami has had the most success, around for over 14 years, it has become the #1 festival of its kind in the world. It has received seven International Dance Music Awards for Best Music Event. It has also had three sell-outs in a row, most notably 2012, which sold out almost three months in advance of the event.

“We have wanted to bring UMF to all corners of the world for a long time but have never been willing to rush the expansion or force something that would not be a great festival,” states Russell Faibisch, Founder, Executive Producer, CEO & President of UMF WORLDWIDE & UMF Miami. “UMF has a very high standard of excellence and has built tremendous credibility with fans, artists and industry professionals across the globe. We are very confident that this global expansion, infused with our unique UMF formula, will become a collective of destination festivals that excites and inspires music enthusiasts throughout the world to travel to and experience as this has already been accomplished with very successful festivals we organize in Miami and Brazil.”
